Oh my gosh… I think my 2014 album is finally done. I have to go through one more time and make sure I haven’t forgotten any important images and do a final check that all my spelling and everything is correct. I am so excited! I can not wait to get this photo book ordered and then in my hands!! This seriously makes me giddy just thinking about it.
I love the little weekly summary cards that start each week, but I also found it stressful at times too. There were some weeks where there wasn’t really much going on. Plus, since I was working on this book a few years later, I didn’t have a good recollection of everything. I relied on my iphone calendar and the Momento app to help me a lot. I think for my next album I will still incorporate some sort of memory card, but it will probably be a 3×4 card. I am also going to try changing from weekly spreads to monthly. Sadly, I am the mom to three teenagers now and quite honestly I don’t get very many pictures these days. We are all going in a hundred different directions and it is just hard. I definitely have weeks where I don’t take any so some months I will probably be lucky to have enough for one spread. However, there will be others with four or more spreads. I am just going to scrap what I love and what I want us to remember. I do still love the simplicity of the white pages and LOVE having white space throughout the page, so the design won’t be changing much there. I am definitely sticking with designing all of my pages on my iPhone and my iPad. It just makes it too easy and fun! I love that I can whip up pages in the school carpool line or while waiting at a doctor’s appointment. I will be sharing a little video soon with more about how I do it.
Anyway… here are the last pages for 2014 (
I think, I HOPE!).
There are quite a few pages for opening Christmas gifts, but I love looking back and seeing what the kids asked for each year.
I will hopefully be sharing the printed book with you soon. So excited!!
